By Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - Two aides in charge of running Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign were taken aback as news broke in March 2015 of Clinton's use of private email for her work as U.S. secretary of state, according to stolen emails published on Thursday by WikiLeaks. The late-night exchange between Robby Mook, Clinton's campaign manager, and John Podesta, the campaign chairman, happened within hours of the New York Times breaking the news that Clinton exclusively used a private email account in a way that may have broken records rules. "Did you have any idea of the depth of this story?" Podesta wrote to Mook at 10:27 p.m. on the night the Times story appeared online, according to an exchange published by WikiLeaks.
Google parent Alphabet on Thursday reported its quarterly profit climbed 27 percent to $5.1 billion, boosted by mobile and video advertising revenue. "We had a great third quarter," Alphabet chief financial officer Ruth Porat said in the earnings release. It has been about a year since the California internet titan revamped its corporate structure, making the Google internet operations a division of Alphabet and putting units such as autonomous cars and internet service balloons in an "other bets" category.
